Howard penned a series of fantasy stories in 1932 featuring Conan, a hulking warrior from Cimmeria who roamed the mythical Hyborian Age landscape engaging in heroic adventures. More than the quirky manifestation of Depression-era magazines, Conan the Barbarian has endured as a cultural mainstay for over 70 years. This multidisciplinary collection offers the first scholarly investigation of Conan, from Howards early stories, through midcentury novels and Arnold Schwarzeneggers iconic films, to the 2011 cinematic remake of Conan the Barbarian.

Drawing on disciplines such as stylometry, archeology, cultural and folklore studies and literary history, the essays examine statistical analyses of the words in Conan texts, the literary genesis of Conan, later-day parodies, Conan video games, and much more. This volume reveals the hidden scholarly depth of this seemingly unsophisticated fictional character.
